energized and they saw of the bomb in the polls. it remains neck-and-neck in the state. a state mitt romney very much wants to change from blue for barack obama back to read with the win for the republicans. it will be three other names under the virginia ballot. he served in virginia state senate as a member of congress between 1997 and 2009. carey johnson was the republican governor of new mexico. a representative of the green party. he she is a position focused on the environment. she was arrested for taking supplies and food for activists in texas. this could make a difference in the tight race. >> another big competition on the ballot is the senate race between tim kaine and george allen. the numbers show the lead is shrinking. the latest poll shows 50% and allen at 46. 4% are undecided. allen has gained since the beginning of october. they know d.c. and virginia and both are focused on the economy. >> the one thing to do is not raise taxes. that would only cause more job losses. >> that -- i want to make sure the sacrifice is shared. >> in the final days of campaigning, both are leani
defense. from the democrats, romney can't find the votes for the battleground states, so he's throwing wild passes where he can't win. the new polls out today suggest the democrats are right, this is a distraction, not a reality. also, that romney jeep advertisement we told you about yesterday was so dishonest, so misleading that chrysler and gm executives themselves are pushing back. people expect politicians to trim the truth a bit, but it's possible that mitt romney has just a crossed a line that not even the most uninformed voters will accept, that jeep is moving to china. and look who's back, joe isuzu, speaking of dishonest, this time campaigning, kind of, for mitt romney. >> i'm joe isuzu. guys, vote for mitt romney and you'll get a free binder full of women, you have my word on it! >> in case you missed that, it's a spoof, sort of, and it's in the side show. joe isuzu is back. finally, let me finish with the best way to fight people who play racial politics -- get out there and vote. this is "hardball," the place for politics. jaw drop? campbell's has 24 new soups that will mak
, and they have been able to say that mitt romney, a state where the bain ads, have had an effect would not be a good stewart that have reinvestment. president obama's core argument here is economic and it's also saying, look, the policies that mitt romney will put in play are the same policies that got us in trouble in the first place. the raw politics of this are fueling the ground game right now. >> let's talk about the numbers. the u.s. economy added 171,000 jobs in october as you both well know, surprisingly strong number. it may end up being the final political football, really the last thing you can give a speech on or cite a press release on. both candidates wasted no time spinning the numbers. listen. >> he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2% right now. today we learned that it's actually 7.9%, and that's 9 million jobs of what he promised. >> this morning we learned that companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> so velvhi, do voters care or is it just noise? >> it's a jobs report you can spin is it either wa
some support in key battleground states that include pennsylvania, new hampshire and ohio. the romney campaign also got some get to that in a moment. joining me now, democratic strategist, julian epstein of the law group. and the former campaign manager chip saltzman. >> let's start with these endorsements and their significance, do newspaper endorsements really matter at this stage in the race, guys? chip, i'll start with you. >> first of all i'm a little upset that you're in down there with ribs and music and i'm in a studio with stale crackers. newspaper endorsements -- >> those ribs will be good -- >> newspaper endorsements make a difference when something like the "des moines register" which hadn't endorsed a republican since 1972 steps up to the plate and endorses mitt romney in a state that's so close. on the margins something like that matter a little bit. but usually we kind of know where our newspapers are on the political spectrum. and they don't make that make a difference, especially compared to what they did 20 years ago. >> julian, i want to put up a snippet from the "d
-disaster relief and again, mitt romney who wants to give it to the states, get rid of fema, put it in the hands of the state or maybe the private sector. can you imagine, can you imagine with this hurricane hitting the coast like new jersey or atlantic city, if you had to count on who? name it. some -- some security firm, blackwell. or something. halliburton. >> there are pictures of firefighters in water up to their chests wading through streets of new york and parks to get to people who help them. they were fighting fires in the middle of a hurricane. they were dealing with buildings that had collapsed in the middle of a hurricane. >> bill: you look at the first responders rescuing those people in the hms bounty that went down. can you imagine halliburton doing it? we took the day off. >> exactly. >> bill: because it's raining. arnold, our rowing ambassador down in greensboro, north carolina. what do you say? >> good morning bill. i'm happy to talk about that. where that storm landed, they shouldn't call
it actually gets worse. romney desperately needs to win the state of florida and he is running a spanish language ad meant to stoke the fears of cuban-americans. the ad tries to connect president obama to venezuelan president hugo chavez and fidel castro. "the miami herald" reports the romney campaign would not furnish the ad despite repeated requests. in other words, the ad is so outrageous, the romney campaign tried to slip it under the radar. obviously the strategy is backfiring. let's turn to annette taddeo, member of the miami-dade democratic party. annette, great to have you with us tonight. i keep saying the bread basket to victory for president obama is going to be south florida. turnout is to important. but now this spanish language ad that's out, what is this doing to stroke the fears and the emotions of people down in that portion of the state? >> well, it just -- i think mitt romney is finally just getting absolutely desperate. it is him learning a little bit of -- him realizing he cannot win, just like you said, without florida, and this is absolutely desperate at its worse.
the candidates go. mitt romney made three campaign appearances in the state of virginia today. president obama jumped all over the place from wisconsin to nevada, to colorado. both candidates are making their closing arguments. interesting. a closing argument. what is mitt romney's closing argument? his latest incarnation is that he's the guy who reaches across the aisle? >> we have to stop the dividing and the attacking and the demonizing. we've got to reach across the aisle, bring in good democrats with good republicans and finally do the people's business and put the politics behind. >> we just need to stop demonizing, don't we? well, old mittster, show leadership and pick up the phone and call mitch mcconnell. it's interesting for mitt romney to present himself as a guy who works across the aisle while president obama is being label by the tea partyers and everybody else in the right wing as nothing but the divider in chief. romney might want to pick up the phone, you know, give this guy a call, keynote speaker of the republican convention. governor christie spent the last four days praisi
: the latest poll shows virginia a dead heat, an important state for romney. he cancelled three campaign events in the state and is expected in ohio today with paul ryan. >> today when we get home put in the prayers the people in the east coast in the wake of this big storm that's coming. >> reporter: ohio is another must-win state. a poll has the race tied 49-49%. >> i know they are chanting four more years but we're chanting all over this country nine more days. >> reporter: on cnn senior obama advisory david axelrod was asked how the storm would impact the race. >> we have to focus on how to help people during the storm and hope it clears out and that by the next weekend we'll be free of it and people can focus on the election. >> reporter: now romney heads to the swing state of iowa on monday. he got a boost with the endorsement of the des moines register. the paper has not endorsed a republican since richard nixon. that was 40 years ago. the president was unable to revive the struggling economy. and no sign of four more years. jan crawford, cbs news, marion, ohio. >> coming up, calculating
're sending them to the supreme court. now when we elect mitt romney next president of the united states, we know we will have a better america. we know that we will have a better michigan. we know that our children and grandchildren will be in a place that we can all be proud of going forward and be safe and secure. so stand with me, stand with all the folks from wayne county. stand with all the folks from michigan and let's elect mitt romney the next president of the united states. [applause] thank you for being here. it's my hon tor to call upon romney to introduce our speaker. >> what do you think about the chairman? he has done such a great job making michigan competitive in this race and because of him michigan is going to put us over the top and win the white house for mitt romney. thank you very much. i am so honored to be able to introduce former first lady laura bush. let me just say a couple of things which obviously we all know what a wonderful first lady she was. i look at her differently. i look at her as a mother. as a mother myself trying to raise wonderful children, i so adm

the recent state polls and the register's endorsement could give romney the boost he needs. it validates romney there, not to mention this is the time the register endorsed a republican in 40 years, the last one was richard nixon in 1972. we know how it turned out. mitt romney is heading to dann port this evening. the president is sending the first lady there today and joe biden on thursday. i want to put up a quote from my friend rory cooper who said "the des moines register" enl dorised carter, mondale, gore and couldn't endorse another four years of obama. wow. you see folks on the left dismissing the value of this. on the right they'll make a big deal about it. i came upon a fun study from 2008. brown university economists found that when moderate papers endorse they're seen as mort credible. when a partisan paper does it, not so much. when the chicago sun times and "denver post" endorsed kerry and bush, the study found 3% of readers switched voting allegiance. they flipped their allegiances in 2000. i have to say, i think an interesting number that matters is when you compare the en
this is of course the native state of mitt romney. you're right, i think that it's still the most likely scenario is whoever wins ohio going to win the presidency, but things are getting so weird and these numbers are getting so contradictory and no scam -bld that you have to start thinking about these possibilities about what if mitt romney lost ohio by an hair if he was to pick up a rich state like michigan then the map becomes viable again. it's getting weird out there. megyn: it was a 14 point race a month ago now it's showing three points n. minnesota it was eight points in president obama's favor a month ago, now it's as tight as 3 points. in pennsylvania it was nine points or more a mow ago, some polls are showing it now within four points and the president is sending sur gather to these states and buying ad time in response to the romney camp doing the same in those states. we had a rasmussen poll that showed romney up two in ohio on monday and a dispatch poll out of ohio showing it tied up in ohio. team obama tells us you cannot believe these numbers. this is a manipulation by the folks
'll be the next president of the united states. >> since the conventions romney has held 27 events in ohio over 12 days. i sent ryan there for 19 events and the president has been there seven times for 10 events. no republican has ever won the white house without ohio, no democrat has done it since jfk. ohio is an important state. when we talk about the state we haven't discussed in this table is the importance of a ground game. the having field offices throughout a state and the things that they can do getting people to the polls and getting information about the candidates. obama's lead in the ground game is massive. obama has 800 field offices throughout the nation, romney only has 300. in ohio the difference is massive, 137-39. this continues throughout the states. you see ohio, florida, colorado. obama's lead is massive. obama built the largest grassroots organization that politics saw in '08 and after he won he continued to build it. this can make a difference of two points and in a close race like this it can make all the difference in '08. it gave obama some already. that's not the situati
. >> reporter: from the white house, president obama has been calling the governors of storm ravaged states and one of romney's key supporters has been praising the president's leadership. >> his cooperation has been great with fema here on the ground and our intelligence center and the cooperation from the president of the united states has been outstanding. he deserves great credit. >> reporter: while the president remains in washington, he's getting help on the campaign trail from former president bill clinton. >> i have worked very hard in this election and i'm not running for anything. >> reporter: clinton was in minnesota tuesday, a state where the race is tightening. he is expected to campaign in six battleground states for president obama before election day. tara mergener for cbs news, the white house. >>> goor romney pls to be back on the campaign trail today with a swing through florida. >>> early voting in the 2012 election was suspended for two days because of sandy. it will resume today in maryland at 8:00 a.m. and run until 9:00 p.m. and will be conducted in maryland until fr
. host: as you know, he famously referred to the state as this. "to make pennsylvania close, mitt romney must win big in alabama." what does he mean by that? guest: he needs to win big in the essential part of the state, what we call the "t." there is lancaster, york, and it spread across the top. he's going to do really well there. romney is doing terrific in the "t." i cannot believe our results in southwestern pennsylvania. if you remember in the primary, hillary clinton be president obama down there. some counties it was by 30-40 points. they were are very upset about the -- are very upset about teh war on coal. i do not agree with josh. we are doing well in the philadelphia suburbs. this will be a surprise election for the democrats. they're not buying into the president's policies and the fact that he has not been able to bring jobs or do a lot of the things that he promised. he really has no plan for the future. those counties that you mentioned, monroe, bucks, chester, a lehigh, we are doing very well. we are ahead in lehigh county. our polls show this as a dead even race. i thin
to designate the electors however they want. the electors for obama or for romney, but if a state wanted to the legislature could choose the electorate rather than having election. they would be voted out of office but they could do it. with those premises in place, the question is, can a state delay an election? yes but not for president. federal law has said you must choose your electors on the first monday after the first tuesday of november. this year, november 6. so the state of new jersey, where we live, for example, could delay congressional elections by a month because they felt candidates could not campaign because of the hurricane but it could not delay the presidential election since that is the date set by congress. so, we have to hold it on that date or hold a substitute for it, like a vote if the legislature on that date. >>neil: what is the likely hood that 20 states, says were affected by the storm in one way, shape or form, not that the entire state is affected by power outages and it is mostly in new jersey or connecticut or the other states is there anything the federa
and not so much the challenger. host: mitt romney will be at florida state holding three rallies. good to c-span.org for coverage. 8:00 p.m. tonight. on c-span. we will show you mitt romney in florida with the former governor, jeb bush. and joe biden will be in florida as well. coverage today around 3:00 p.m. on c-span, campaign rally in that state. and the spread the jobs report comes out, could that be a game tinder? could that be an october surprise? guest: i do not think so. over the last several months, good news or bad news, these jobs reports are not moving numbers. a big bet is because the average american doesn't really pay attention to jobs numbers. the vaguely no unemployment is high and their own personal economic situation is not good. that is their view of the economy. their view of the economy is not clear to be changed with what bls says. david job whether their neighbors have a job. -- they have a job whether their neighbors have a job. is this jobless report comes out and it is really bad or really great news, first of all, i do not think a lot of people will pay attention
men, four states. a chance of four more days instead of four more years, mitt romney has put the badger state in play. >> thanks to ann romney -- next to ann romney, paul ryan is the best choice i have ever made. >> with these guys, it always depends. who you're talking to. what state you are in. >> how about ohio? that is for the president spoke three times to dead. remember every president since truman has upheld the bellwether state. >> we may have had problems, but we are here today because we know we have more work to do. >> with a hefty 18 electoral votes up for grabs, romney has two events there today. colorado, also a tough one for republicans, and it was seen in obama's column. but romney is up three according to a rasmussen paul. and both teams have fought incredibly hard over d six electoral votes. perhaps an indicator that even the smallest trophy cannot be passed up. of course, va. -- it has been 24 hours since we have seen the candidates. don't worry. the president, with bill clinton and musician dave matthews, will be in virginia and monday will cap off his cam
governor romney is leading in a battleground state. >> no, we haven't. but he feels really good about florida. his team does. i don't think it's a double-digit lead, but they're feeling good about florida. they're feeling good about wisconsin. they think the apparatus in place from the efforts on behalf of scott walker are going to galvanize republicans and make sure that a ground game turns out the vote. the same for mitt romney and paul ryan. they are feeling good about a lot of states where they've closed with the president, if they haven't surpassed him. what they're always hoping, too, tamron is that this is 1980 and that there's going to be a last-minute wave for romney. had they come to the polls, they go, i've really gone back and forth. it's time for something new and that he ends up winning, and maybe it's not by a landslide, but by a very healthy margin. and that's what they're counting on in these final days. >> keith, let me bring you in. i want to play a little bit of what the director of marist polling had to say about what we're seeing in some of these numbers. let's p
to four states including wisconsin and colorado. and florida, mitt romney backed off as he acknowledged those struggling in the aftermath of the storm. >> keep folks in your thoughts and prayers. it is a big part of what america is. >> both candidates will refocus. >> memories are short. by the weekend, we will be focusing on the candidates. >> so far, it has been up to the surrogates to do the slamming. jeb bush had some choice words about president obama. >> his entire strategy is to blame others, starting with my brother, of course. >> joe biden return the favor with a swipe at romney in the sunshine state. >> his plans are not sketchy, they are etch a sketchy. >> biden is on the trail today, so is the president, in the west and midwest. mitt romney has to virginia, with that state's governor has asked towns hit hard by sandy to extend some hours for early and absentee voting. >>, the impact of voting on tuesday? >> that is a good question. we spoke with some analysts who say, it should not be a huge distraction. any sort of disruption indicates you'll likely see it more on the local
tours between now and election day that governor romney or paul ryan campaigning in this state. 15 events and all. so they are laying all their cards down in ohio. 18 electoral votes are very important. one of the things they're having to sort of overcome here is whether governor romney is of a supporter of union workers. and the job of the car industry in particular. obviously president obama signed that auto bailout package. a lot of folks in ohio and some surrounding states are very appreciative of that. they believe they still have a job today because of that bailout. governor romney, on the other hand, was in favor of a managed bankruptcy for g.m. and chrysler. and so he's got to somehow get voters to look past that, that he would be a supportive president of union workers in this state. as you mentioned, governor romney is down in florida today. we are expected after this bus tour to head down there as well. but right now the polls are looking in the president's favor. the latest cnn poll has the president up 50-46. there's still some work to be done here but we can tell you
romney is on the ground in virginia, in the southern part of the state. it is the governor's second event, by the way, of the day there. earlier today in central virginia, the governor resumed his message that he is the change candidate. this election, something he started before the storm. >> if the president were to be re-elected, you're going to see high levels of unemployment continue and stalled wage growth, if any wage growth at all, just like we've seen over the last four years. >>> and we're also getting a look at a new round of battleground polls all showing the president leading or running neck and neck with governor romney. in iowa the president is ahead six appointments among likely voters. he had an eight-point lead earlier this month. in wisconsin, the score is 49-46. the president's three-point lead there is just within the margin of error. look at new hampshire, the governor romney has cut the president's lead to just two points. the governor was down seven before the debate. let me bring in our political panel for this thursday before election day. nbc news senior politic
the state if democrats win the early voting battle by a significant margin? >> governor romney really needs to win in the state of florida. the early voting, you characterized that right. it's been a democratic strength. as a matter of fact, in 2008, the obama team had a 10% advantage on early vote nationwide. what we are seeing in these battleground states and across the country in this cycle is that that advantage is still there but much smaller, less than 4% advantage to the democrats so far in early voting. what the republicans are trying to do in key states like florida, especially ohio, is just do everything they can to improve upon their performance four years ago and mccain's performance four years ago. to have a really vigorous get out the vote effort on election day. >> i want to continue this conversation about early voting. let's move to ohio now. "time" magazine found this week that among voters in ohio who have not yet cast ballots, the race is tied 45%-45%. among those who already voted, the president has a 30-point edge. in 2008 about 1/3 of ohio voters cast their ballots ea
the election in 2008, it was mitt romney. these were his predictions for states that john mccain was definitely going to win. >> john mccain is leading in the states he's got to lead in like ohio and florida. we'll pick up pennsylvania. we think we have a good shot at virginia, new hampshire, new mexico, nevada. that's the pathway to victory for john mccain. >> you see how all those states were blue? mr. romney's confident predictions that john mccain was going to win ohio, florida, pennsylvania, virginia, new hampshire, new mexico and thef today in 2008 were wrong in every single instance. they lost every single one of those states. even though it seemed like he seemed quite confident that they were going to win all of those states the day before the election. he didn't say like he felt they were going to win. he said they have the polling data that showed they were going to win in all those states. and they did not win in any of those states. this is just part of the way the game is played. it's just bluffing. and that is important context for understanding what's going on in these last four
of ohio. if the buckeye state is governor romney's must-win, same can be said for president obama in pennsylvania where the latest "philadelphia inquirer" poll has the president up by a sizable margin. governor romney has narrowed the lead to six points there. 49-43 in pennsylvania. mitt romney's running mate is on the about us hoeding across ohio. congressman paul ryan on a two-day eight-stop trip through the critical battleground state calling on voters to support the republican ticket. nbc news correspondent ron mott on the bus with the vp nominee. i understand you just arrived in circleville, ohio? >> reporter: we are behind schedule by about 40 minutes, i would say. paul ryan just finished up a quick brief address with supporters outside lindsey's bakery. i'm told it's world famous. they've got pumpkin donuts they put on the bus here. we have two more events in about 120 or so miles left to go. this is a must-win for the campaign. that's the way they're positioning it. ohio senator rob portman said he can't see this republican ticket winning the white house without winning he
is the president of the united states. by the way, we only have one president. i don't like the idea of mitt romney frying to go around and pretend he's the president of the united states when he's not. president obama canceled campaign events, and then governor romney -- this is a statement about what you do as president. that's why this storm is an important issue. you have to be president of all the american people and not president of new jersey and virginia because they have republican governors. why didn't mitt romney bother to call the other three? maybe because he has a record where he said back in the defwat last year when he was running trying to be severely conservatively that he would cut fema funding and send it back to the states and privatize it. this is why it's so important, because it illustrates the importance of government and illustrates the two fundamentally two different choices of the two candidates running for the highest office in land. >> chip, i think we have that sound from the debate. at the time governor romney was asked whether or not with fema and its financial prob
on the margin that helps the romney campaign in state of pennsylvania. >> bret: let me push back. it hurts because things are amiss in america? >> i would no sense suggesting that people are going to rationally conclude obama is responsible for the hurricane. of course not. but if you looking at a candidate, incumbent and ask am i happy with the state of the country right now, possible on the margins to effect the tiny group of undecided voters at this stage, you know, the fact there is a hurricane and ugly pictures on television add to the cumulative effect that america is not going in right direction. >> response and how it, the response has gone arguably you had new jersey governor chris christie who said the president has done very well. it's gone smooth. most of the response is handleed by the governors. state-by-state. but it does require some federal assistance. coordination on the federal level. he said the president is to be mended. the president is going to new jersey tomorrow. chuck? >> i would perhaps agree with tucker if it were in some way clear that president obama had misha
states a tougher challenge for romney. obama campaign officials argue polls of early voters in battleground states suggest their bank of obama votes means romney will have to win on election day well more than half the votes in key states to win. but the president is not relying solely on early voting or even on this new rekindled bipartisan pitch. in this state alone, diane, president obama and his allies have run 16,000 more ads than romney and his allies. and if that's not enough for you, on monday, president obama will be back here in ohio with bruce springsteen. diane? >> okay, thank you, jake. >>> and also tonight, the latest in our brand new daily abc news/"washington post" polls. tonight, the poll gives mitt romney a one-point edge. so, we asked abc's david muir to tell us his strategy for the final sprint. >> reporter: mitt romney bolting through the battlegrounds. today, on the campaign plane, it was the candidate taking pictures. romney capturing images of his staff sneaking a nap, as romney faces to the finish. in just the last 24 hours, virginia -- >> virginia,
that governor romney's momentum jumped containment from the usual target states and spread to deeper blue states that chicago never anticipated defending. paul ryan was in his home state of wisconsin to encourage relief efforts of campaign victory offices. the native son popularity helped him surge in 2.3 points of the president in real clear politics average of recent wisconsin polls. thursday he will visit virginia where the top ally is dealing with the clean-up. >> we are issuing a letter today to all the voting registrar office around the state. asking them to stay open for up to eight additional hours to make up for the time. that a citizen may not have had to vote absentee. over the last two days. >> i don't think the damage has been massive. not in virginia it appears. especially northern virginia. not necessarily in new hampshire. so, we're not looking at swing states, sustaining the damage. >> devastation hasn't completely disrupted the campaign. advertisements continue and endorsements continue. today, romney picked up support of former chrysler cio and hal sperling, saying he is the r
